Starts off a little slow but gets very interesting as you progress through the day, I highly recommend ending the day in the cellar pub in the Old Town, grabbing a bite to eat off the square (really amazing food and not at all expensive) for lunch is a great idea.

Excellent tour guide! Top class! Kamil Rozanski… very passionate about his job and very knowledgeable. Have done this tour before, but Kamil was a super guide. Would highly recommend. Thank you.
